Track Name: Ten Thousand Tears
Lyrics:


A good man tried to shoot me towards the premier league of life
But somehow I got deflected Lord, I ended up in strife
Now I've cried ten thousand tears, over what seems like such wasted years
But I'll cry for you no more my friend

(I) swear sometimes I've lost the plot, over every fool who tried to hurt me
My arms ache, my feet get tired, I wanna lay right on down
I wasn't born to let time pass me by, I know I'll get there if I try
And I'll cry for you no more my friend again

Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears

Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears

Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears
Ten thousand tears
Track Name: I Can't Hide
Lyrics:

I’ve been screening my brain for the meaning in this life
Some folks ride you, they’ll classify you in their mind
I just want to be alone but I can’t hide from myself

I’ve been scheming, been misdemeaning, don’t know why
All those days, I’ve been miles away from a reply
I just want to be alone but I can’t hide from myself

I can’t hide from myself
Tried and tried
But I can’t hide from myself

I’ve been running from dawn to dusk I’m hiding, can’t get no rest
I hear voices from right behind me, they shout and cry
I just want to be alone but I can’t hide from myself

I can’t hide from myself
Tried and tried
But I can’t hide from myself
